VeryWell Mind

"Best for SAD. Designed to improve sleep, boost your mood, and improve concentration, it's highly recommended for individuals who experience SAD."

Men's Journal

"Some claim this lamp provides the best combination of function and affordability in the entire Therapy Light space, and we certainly can’t argue. It’s unobtrusive and looks great on the desk, and includes a safe, glare-free screen as well as flicker-free bulbs and adjustable stand with flexible angle, so you can project light downward, as recommended by health experts."

The Strategist

"This lamp, by Carex, a company often used in research trials, has a big screen with plenty of surface area. It won’t win any design awards, but it’s rated 10,000 lux at 14 inches, which means you get 10,000 lux when you are 14 inches away from the light. This model is positioned at a downward-facing angle, which all four experts recommend."

Don't settle for subpar light therapy sun lamps.

For genuinely effective sun lamp therapy, trust in the Day-Light bright light therapy brand. The Day-Light Classic Plus is used worldwide by leading university researchers. It's been awarded the "best therapy lamp" by the New York Times, VeryWell Mind, Psych Central, Healthline, Prevention, and more.

Using it is simple. Sit in front of the light therapy lamp for 20-30 minutes each morning for the best results. Our lamp triggers serotonin production, a critical hormone that regulates energy, sleep, and mental health.

"Sets itself apart from most SAD Lights as it provides light from above, shining down onto your eyes - the perfect way to receive light therapy. My Rating: 92%"

Red Light Therapy Guide

"We actually like the 'omni' approach that Carex has taken with this model. What you are paying for with the Day Light Classic is a highly clinical method of home SAD therapy treatment and a build quality that means that will last. This device could become your old best friend over very many winters to come."

Aging in Place

"This mood light is incredibly useful and often a life changer for seniors who deal with seasonal depression and lack enough sunlight in their life. If you life in an area that does not have ample amount of sunlight or your living conditions do not provide you with that, then this is a great option."

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • I\'ve used the lamp twice, for about 5 minutes each time. I feel dizzy and disoriented afterwards and my eyes are straining. Is this normal?

    Side effects with bright light therapy are not uncommon and often dissipate in a few days as one becomes accustomed to the light. When using the lamp, do not stare at the light itself, but let the light shine down as you read, check email, etc. Some people will also move the lamp further away until they feel more comfortable under the light.   There are a number of resources that can help you learn more about bright light therapy, such as the Mayo Clinic website, cet.org or webmd. Always look for information from a reputable source and speak with your healthcare provider for specific questions related to your circumstances.

  • Can you adjust the height, independent of the angle? I mean, not the angle but just the height by itself?

    Yes. Press the button on the front of the base while moving the inner post up or down. Release button and wiggle post up & down a little to lock it in place at the nearest height level.

  • Can it be used as a task light?

    This light is designed mainly for therapy. If you are looking for a therapy light that can also be used as a task light you may want to check out our Aura Therapy light. This one uses LED bulbs, has 4 intensity settings and a tilting lamp head. When used as a task light, you can face the light down towards a tabletop and not have to worry about overexposure to the therapy it provides. I hope this helps. Thank you for asking.

  • Does this product use batteries or electricity?

    Electricity, standard 120 volt 3-prong grounded outlet.

  • Where is the power switch, on the chord, light, or on the base?

    The power switch is on the chord.

  • There are two settings on my lamp but they are not marked. Does anyone know if the switch should be up for therapy or down?

    Click up for therapy and down for a regular light

  • Will it damage unprotected eyes?

    My first answer is, no. However, one shouldn't be looking directly into the light, either. That being said, therapeutic light is received when doing something...reading, crafting, etc, within something like 18" from the light. If you "protect" your eyes, you won't be receiving therapeutic amounts of light.

  • Can I wear my glasses while using this lamp?

    Yes, I wear my reading glasses all the time while using the light

  • What is the height range?

    The base of this light stands at 28.7" inches, from the top of the base the light can be adjusted up to 31".

  • Is there a user manual for the daylight classic plus lamp?

    There sure is! It can be found here: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0240/6504/8681/files/userguide-Daylight-Plus-LED.pdf?17402 

    For additional light therapy tips, we recommend our use guide: https://carex.com/blogs/resources/how-to-use-a-light-therapy-lamp

  • You can push the switch on the side up or down. What is the difference between the up light and the down light?

    Thanks for reaching out! This turns the light intensity down. The upward switch position sets the light therapy lamp to 10,000 LUX therapy mode. The downward switch position sets it to 5,000 LUX for use as a task lamp.

    Hope this helps!

  • what is the wavelength range ?

    The wavelength for the Day-Light Classic Plus is 450nm – 675nm.

  • Can a person sit too long under the light? Maybe 3 to 4 hours with it 24 inches away and always directly under it?

    We do not recommend using the lamp for too long with the therapy mode on as this can interfere with your sleep-wake cycle. However, it is okay to use the task mode for as long as you like. If you are sitting 24 inches away, you should get the benefits of light therapy by using it for about 30 minutes each morning. Try testing out your time and see which works best for you. Hope this helps! If you need further help, we have a section in our light therapy guide that goes over the basic of using a light therapy lamp: https://carex.com/blogs/resources/bright-light-therapy-guide#howtouselighttherapylamps

  • Can the task light be used for extended periods of time?

    Yes, the task mode on the Day-Light Classic Plus can be used for as long and as often as needed.

  • My glasses have transition lenses, which means they darken in sunlight. Do I need to remove them for therapy?

    Yes, it is important that the light be able to shine into your eyes. Normal glasses are okay however transition lenses will prevent you from receiving the benefits of bright light therapy.

  • does this unit produce full spectrum light?

    Yes, this light therapy lamp produces full-spectrum light. Thanks for asking!

  • Do you have lamps that can be used with 220V electricity? If not, will using a transfromer with the lamp be safe?

    The Day-Light Classic Plus, Day-Light Sky, and Carex Sunlite will not accept 220v input.  They will work properly with an appropriate step-down transformer.

    The TheraLite 10,000 LUX Mood and Energy Enhancing Light Therapy Lamp and TheraLite Aura have external power adaptors that are capable of accepting 110v-220v input.  They would only need a travel adaptor to connect to the wall socket.

    Hope this helps!

  • How long do the lightbulbs last before needing to be replaced?

    This light therapy lamp uses LED bulbs and do not need to be replaced. The lamp is covered under a five-year warranty, should anything happen.

  • I have this product and have forgotten which direction is "therapy" and which is "task" please advise.

    Thanks for reaching out! The up direction is for therapy and the down is for task. You'll notice the light intensity goes up/down based on which setting you're one.

  • Does this lamp use LEDs or is it still using fluorescent bulbs? I'm considering it as a present for someone who hates the buzzing sound of fluorescent bulbs.

    Nope! We've switched our newer models over to LED since they last longer, don't break easily, and make no noise when on.

  • What type of extension cord should I use for the Carex daylight plus model?

    You'll need a three-prong extension cord for the Day-Light Classic Plus.

  • Is this light Full Spectrum?

    Yes, the Day-Light Classic Plus is full spectrum. Thanks for asking!

  • I’m wondering how long you need to sit in front of the light on the lower setting to achieve a therapeutic dose of light. I find the bright setting too intense and am hoping I can achieve the same effect at the lower setting if I sit for longer. Thank you!

    The lower light setting produces 5,000 LUX so you'll want to sit 12-14" from it for about one hour for an effective treatment. Hope this helps!

  • What’s the CRI rating on this lamp?

    Great question! The Carex Day-Light Classic Plus Light Therapy Lamp has a CRI rating of 85 with a color temperature of 4000K.

  • how long do you use per day?

    Great question! We recommend using therapy lamps for 20-30 minutes in the morning when sitting 12-24 inches away. If you are sitting further away, it's recommended to use it for longer.

  • I don’t sit still a lot while getting ready for my day. Do I have to sit in front of the lamp for 30 minutes uninterrupted or can it be in increments totaling 30 minutes?

    For best results, we recommend sitting in front of it for 30-minutes in one period. However, it is not mandatory. If you're splitting up your sessions, try to keep them as close to each other as possible and in the morning. You want your body to produce serotonin as soon as possible to synchronize your sleep-wake cycle. Using your lamp too late in the day can cause sleep interruptions.

    For even more tips, our article on making the most of light therapy is a great resource: https://carex.com/blogs/resources/how-to-use-a-light-therapy-lamp

    Hope this helps!

  • Does the Carex Day-Light Classic Plus Bright Light Therapy Lamp help people with Vitamin D deficiency?

    Great question! No, it does not help with vitamin D deficiency as its filter blocks out the UV that would help with this condition. All of our lamps feature UV filters to protect your skin and eyes. UV can be very damaging.

  • Where can I buy replacement bulb? on your website it is said to replace bulb every 2 years or so depending on the usage

    Hey Derek, we have switched our lamps from fluorescent to LED bulbs, which do not require replacement. Because of this, we do not offer replacement bulbs any longer.

  • Hello team, I'd like to buy one and us it in The Netherlands, Europe. We have 220V. Which adapter should I buy? Can I use this device safely on 220V ? Kind regards

    The Day-Light Classic Plus is only suitable for use with 100-120V line voltage. We recommend using a step-down transformer that converts 220V to 110V. Hope this helps!

  • the lamp has two settings - which one do I use and where can I find info on each setting

    For therapy mode (10,000 LUX), turn the switch up. For task mode (5,000 LUX), turn the switch down. More information can be found in the user guide: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0240/6504/8681/files/CFDL93011_UserGuide_02_05.03.2021.pdf?v=1660932053

  • I have misplaced the entire power cord for the unit. What exact type of cord is it, or can you sell it. I just need the power cord.

    It’s an IEC C-13 Plug that connects to the light and uses 18AWG wire with ground.

  • Does this lamp help with vitamin D deficiency?

    No, our lamps do not provide vitamin D. They use UV filters to protect your eyes and skin.

  • I don’t sit still a lot while getting ready for my day. Do I have to sit in front of the lamp for 30 minutes uninterrupted or can it be in increments totaling 30 minutes?

    For best results, we recommend sitting in front of it for 30-minutes in one period. However, it is not mandatory. If you're splitting up your sessions, try to keep them as close to each other as possible and in the morning. You want your body to produce serotonin as soon as possible to synchronize your sleep-wake cycle. Using your lamp too late in the day can cause sleep interruptions.

    Hope this helps!

  • Does this get dangerously hot? Is it safe for a person with visual or mobility disabilities to use?

    Thanks for reaching out! Our lamp uses LEDs which only emit a minor amount of heat. In terms of safety, we do not recommend light therapy to anyone with light sensitivity as it can hurt your eyes.
